Emergency Help

We can’t be there in person to help and support you in a moment of crisis, but there are other options available to you if you can’t turn to someone you trust. By giving us your postcode (or one nearby to where you are right now) we can let you know about services in your area. Remember: this moment will pass; you won’t always feel the way you do right now. 

If in doubt always call 999.

You can also sign up to Alumina, our online support for mental health and wellbeing here:

​Egg painting

An art & wellbeing activity for Easter! 🥚🐣

Hollowing out and painting eggs is an easter art activity you might remember doing at nursery or school. Sometimes, when you're feeling stressed or anxious, engaging in art activities you did when you were younger can remind you of a time when life was simpler! Simple and reflective activities like this can really help you to feel relaxed by focusing your attention and distracting you from your worries.

Follow these 5 steps to hollow out your egg... and then it's time to get creative!

1️⃣  Wash and dry your egg.

2️⃣  Make a hole in the top of your egg by pushing a needle through it and breaking the yolk inside. Then, make a smaller hole at the other end of the egg.

3️⃣  Blow into the small hole whilst holding the egg over a bowl.

4️⃣  Wash the empty egg out by holding the larger hole under the tap. Allow your egg to dry before you start painting it.

5️⃣  Place the egg in an egg cup or carton so that it won't move whilst you are painting it.
